This is a beautiful Making Faces Book Trailer made by the talented Tamara Debbaut. The song on the trailer is called Polaroid by Paul Travis...who also happens to be my son. Mama's proud. He is amazing. So it the trailer. Want to see?
My son, Samuel, was born with a port-wine stain that covered half of his face. It was very dark red and the skin on that side is slightly thicker than the skin on the other side of his face. Luckily for Sam, they can now treat this condition, where even ten-fifteen years ago, that option did not exist. The treatments are very expensive and painful, and so far, Sam has had four laser surgeries, which have improved the overall appearance. He will have to have several more. However, he still gets stares and whispers, and I can't tell you how many times I've overheard someone say, (mostly little kids who don't know better) "What's wrong with his face?"
In my new book, Making Faces, I introduce you to Ambrose Young, a handsome, young, athlete who volunteers to serve his country and is injured in Iraq. This is a special story, and it's an important one. It's funny and romantic and heart-breaking. I hope my romance readers won't be turned off by Ambrose Young or his injuries, both emotional and physical.
Available on October 20! I would really love to see this book do well, because it isn't your typical romance. It will break your heart, but you'll love every second of it.
